Dare 2B Artzy Day

I'm over on the Dare 2B Artzy blog today with this card;

I did some alcohol ink playing and loved it so much, I turned it into an ornament.  The Merry Christmas Layered Die is a new die available at Dare 2B Artzy.  I totally am loving the mixed font of this die.  [The price is very reasonable too!]

That's it for me today.  How are your Christmas cards coming along?

Tracy's 25 Days of Christmas Tags - STAMPlorations

I get the pleasure of joining in twice with Tracy's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, this time using STAMPlorations!  Sheri's prize is a $46 gift certificate, and also a Christmas Bundle valued at over $50!  [That will be a lot of product since Sheri's prices are so fabulous!]

On to my tags for today's post;
These fun trees are from the Sketchy Yule Trees, designed by Shery Russ Designs.

I colored the images with my Copics.

I wanted a textured background, so I separated a cardboard box lid, and used the inside with some texture paste, and added glitter.  I fussy cut the tree images, and adhered on to the tag.

I like the "snowy" background look it gave my tags, along with the additional texture.  I used some red Sparkle for the ornaments. My tag bases are from the Manila Tags Nesting Dies.

For more amazing tag samples, you can go over to Tracy's Blog HERE.  She has a ton of prizes, and so many samples of tags, you will simply want to grab your cup of coffee and just peruse for a time!  [this tag event started the 1st of November.]

CAS on Sunday #121 & A Blog Named Hero

Today I am joining in a couple of challenges. 

For my first card, I am entering this into A Blog Named Hero; CASE a Designer. For my CASE, I chose Tracy Freeman's card.  I love sponging - I love the "glow" that is created.

While I used another company's stamps, I also used Hero Arts Holiday Sayings for the ivy image you see.  This set is retired, but it still qualifies for this challenge [you must use at least 1 Hero Arts product].  Meanwhile, I like my card, and I have yet another Christmas card for mailing.

Here is the card I CASED:

I also went on to play in the CAS on Sunday Challenge #121; washi tape.

I love it when I get to use a supply of something I have so much of! [Those trends! :)]  I used the Hero Arts set Joy Stamp & Cut, some pretty die cuts, and some fun washi tape.

Once again, I had a blast.  Thanks challenges.

CAS-ual Fridays Snowflake Card

It's my day for CAS-ual Fridays.  Today, I was asked to use snowflakes.  That is an easy request :).

Another Fun Challenge - The Flower Challenge

Today I am playing in The Flower Challenge challenge #14;  CAS.

I'm not sure if this qualifies since I didn't "color" the Spellbinder's Layered Poinsettia, but the card is CAS, and it does have a flower, so I am going with it. Plus, I like it.

Thanks challenge - I had a good time creating.
